Sending money via Paypal Fee Free or sending as a “Friend”
Using PayPal in the traditional way allows PayPal to charge a fee. There is a way to send money to City Lights where PayPal does not charge a fee, which of course means more revenue for the gallery.
Here is how it works:
A person has to have a PayPal account, which is funded, or has access to funds, in order to be able to send funds to a “friend”, and that “friend” is City Lights. Once logged into PayPal.com there are two options: ‘Pay for goods or services’ or ‘Send money to a friend’. Using the CityLightsCoop@centurylink.net email address anyone can send money to the gallery to pay for Membership Renewal or to make a donation to the gallery. There is a place where a ‘note’ can be entered by the sender to indicate the purpose of the money. Please be specific on what the money is for so that when the notification email is received from PayPal into the gallery’s email, the person handling the email can take the appropriate action. Sending money to the gallery means all money goes to the gallery and it saves you money too!!!
